Easy Granola Bars

TEB loves a good granola bar. While, bars aren’t my personal preference, it’s important that the bars he does consume be full of nutrients+clean ingredients+real food. These fit the bill, and no, I don’t always make homemade bars.

These are SUPER easy, and you probably already have some or all of the ingredients on the list. Plus you can switch ingredients around! If you don’t like raisins, maybe add some unsweetened cherries instead.

Collagen was perfect to add for some extra protein. OX Nutrition blends better than any collagen I have EVER used, plus they source sustainably and that is important to me. Click here to save $10 off at checkout and be sure to use code: sarah10

A few of the items in the recipe are linked below, but in case you have never tried Thrive Market, you can save 25% off your first order, click here to start shopping+save! We stock up on a lot of bulk items from there, and typically order once a month!

Some of the other ingredients like the coconut oil and flax meal were purchased at Aldi. You can see all of my Aldi Favs here. (I’m obsessed)
